(optional) Step 7. Enriching ALERTs that are sent to a BMC Impact Manager cell

Rules can be used to enrich ALERTs that a Rule sends to a BMC Impact Manager cell in the following ways:
  • Add a new ALERT: when you specify that a Rule sends an ALERT to a cell, the Alert Action III BEIM panel provides input fields where you can enrich the ALERT information

  • Modify an ALERT: when an ALERT-initiated Rule modifies an existing ALERT, the ALERT being modified can also contain enriched information from the Alert Action III BEIM panel

Note

For more information about customization steps that must be completed to send MainView AutoOPERATOR events to a BMC Impact Manager cell, refer to Chapter 17, 'Implementing the MainView AutoOPERATOR Interface to BMC Impact Manager' in the MainView AutoOPERATOR Customization Guide.

Use the Alert Action III BEIM panel to specify:

  • whether details for the ALERT should be written to the BBI Journal

  • specify targets where the ALERT will be published

  • a new class name to be associated with the slots and values

  • a 'Component Alias' for event correlation against objects in the Service Impact Model (SIM)

  • additional information about this Rule's BMC II for z/OS slots

For information about fields on this panel, refer to Alert Action III BEIM - panel fields.

The following figure shows an example of the panel for the event type MSG.

 Press ENTER or END to continue, or CANCEL to cancel changes.

An ALRT-initiated Rule can replace the targets that were specified in the original ALERT; for example, if an ALERT was created with a target name of MODEL-1, the Rule can override that value by specifying the following values on this panel:

Target(s)         ===> MODEL*

An ALRT-initiated Rule can also add to the targets that were specified in the original ALERT; for example:

Target(s)         ===> &AMFPTG1 MODEL*
